    The quiet one on the left of course!! She’s just following biblical guidelines from Ephesians 5:22 and submitting to her man as he calls the shots. What??? Birds don’t marry?? Oh well, gals, I tried to help us:-)

    The one on left is the female. He’s telling her about the 20′ earthworm that he didn’t catch for breakfast.

    I suppose you want us to say the one with its mouth open:-)

    Hey Darlene, Steve’s got a great sence of humor, his captions make me LOL all the time, it’s just more subtle. He’s a pretty gutsy guy today putting himself out there with this one. Actually girls, I think the female is on the right giving it to him for not coming home last night and the barn swallows from the 12th are her friends, yelling ” YOU GO GIRL!” The male on the left has already tuned her out and and is in lala land!

    After the comments on Facebook and on here I now know how that male Mockingbird feels.

    Looks like you’ve already learned the error of your ways, so, I’ll just comment on the photo…cute capture :-)

    Cute But I agree she can not get a word said. She is on the left.

    Cindy, do men ever learn?

    Too funny! I want to show my wife, but… I’m scared.

    I figure she’s got her mouth open waiting for the gift of food he’s sure to be giving her since it’s courting season – I love all the comments – you sure did get a lot today Steve… great capture!
